Flo as an Author
In 2016, Flo was approached by the world’s largest publisher of business e-books, Bookboon.com, who commissioned a book on stakeholders from her. One thing led to another and researching and then writing books turned out to be little bit addictive.
Below are her current books which are available to buy and download online.

More and more organisations are turning to coaching as it becomes an increasingly trusted method to develop people, teams and the organisation itself. Coaching is a collaborative process geared towards helping an individual, group or team successfully resolve a challenge.
This book is for managers with little or no experience with coaching and who are interested in developing their coaching capabilities to support their teams. Its aim is to introduce tried-and-tested coaching tools and techniques to try out in real life situations and support and challenge individuals and teams to greatness
UNDERSTANDING STAKEHOLDERS (2nd Ed. 2018)
Stakeholder engagement is the process of understanding and involving stakeholders in an organisation’s objectives. The emphasis of this book is on understanding stakeholders through five organisational lenses: senior leadership, the HR function, project management, marketing and communications and customer services.
As the author experienced firsthand, stakeholders are considered slightly differently by each of these functional perspectives. By visiting each perspective we will pick up additional approaches and stakeholder methods and reduce potential confusion when working across functions.
